What is Family Ministries?

Family Ministry at FCC offers a variety of opportunities to connect with other Christian families in order to encourage one another in our marriages, parenting, care-giving for our elderly parents, and to build lasting friendships as families. As a ministry of Free Christian Church, anything we do focuses on inviting individuals into a relationship with Jesus Christ and a community of Christian love. It is our desire that families develop Christ-like maturity and be mobilized for service to His church and the world, and in turn bring Him glory.

Why Choose Family Ministries?

• Simplify your schedule by attending activities on one night at one place

Family Night

Your children (infants-8th grade) can participate in their midweek small group while you participate in an adult small group. Everyone in the family is growing in their faith and you’re only out one night a week, the same night, together. Families share a pizza and salad dinner every other month. These nights are designedwith the whole family in mind! We make lots of memories, create community and celebrate our Lord together. Family Night meets at FCC Andover.

Family Night Programs meet Wednesday nights from 6:00-7:30pm at 31 Elm St, Andover, MA.
